Template from SAB Simply Sent Happy Hello

This is a single small box that I made using the SAB Simply Sent Happy Hello cards. I saw this on Laura Haffke's video on StampinConnection.  I wanted to make a template of the card so that I would have the pattern for making the box and more cards with the same shape so that I would have it after SAB was over.  Below is the picture of the pattern.
You can make the box using regular cardstock.  Cut a 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock in half at 5 1/2".  Score  on the long side at 4 1/4" , 3 3/4",4 3/4" . Turn and score on the short side at 1" on each side.  Cut at 3 3/4" and 4 3/4" up to the score line.
Fold in half at 4 1/4" and using an extra large Oval punch, punch 1 hole at the top of your box and then punch the opposite hole for your handle.  The cardstock is too thick to punch them at the same time.  Apply sticky strip on the part that will be the front of the box.(2  pieces on each side) Remove pieces of sticky strip from the front sides of the box and fold in the back sides first, then the small middle and finally the front sides.  Before folding the box together and cutting the oval pice out, turn it over and cut the designer paper 5"x 3".  The oval piece that you cut out will be the "tag" with the stamped image on it.
